T-55AM2 Panzer Kompanie (TEBX01)
Of the 2100 T-55 tanks supplied to NVA by the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, and Poland, nearly 300 were upgraded to the T-55AM2 standard. The T-55AM2 was fitted with a modern fire control system with a ballistic calculator, calculating such things as air pressure, air temperature, the weight of ammunition, reduced velocity for tube wear, and so on. It was also fitted with a laser rangefinder.

Two Sides of the Iron Curtain Two Sides of the Iron Curtain
German Forces in World War III
After its defeat in the Second World War, Germany was occupied by the victorious Allied Powers. The Soviet Union controlled the part to the east, while Britain, France and the United States occupied the part to the west and the responsibility for the security of Germany was left to the four occupying powers. The relationship between the democratic West (the United States, Britain, and France) and the communist East (the Soviet Union) soon broke down and an Iron Curtain was drawn across central Europe. Germany was divided in two.

Stalking Your Prey In The Night
One of the many advantages of fighting at night is when you have night vision. Unlike in daylight, you can hide in plain sight and hopefully maintain a stealthy advantage, being less cautious with your layout and taking the enemy by surprise right in front of them!
